Los Angeles Lakers star, Anthony Davis, picked up two different injuries in the game in Minnesota on Friday night, first hitting his right ankle and then his left knee.
Coach Frank Vogel said Davis will get an MRI test on Saturday. He only had nine points and one rebound in 20 minutes of a 110-92 loss to the Timberwolves.
Late in the first quarter, Davis landed on Nas Red’s leg of Minnesota and fell to the ground in apparent pain while clutching his right ankle. Davis was able to walk very cautiously on his own to the locker room for further examination. He had six points in 11 minutes before he got hurt.
Late in the second quarter, Davis returned to the bench and returned to the game. But, in the middle of the third quarter, the eight-time All-Star hit Jaden McDaniels of Minnesota and couldn’t put a weight on his left knee. He left Earth again, this time for the rest of the night.
Davis missed two games last week with left knee pain. On Wednesday, he returned to Dallas with 20 points and 12 rebounds.
The Lakers have already been short-handed in dealing with major Covid-19 issues. They had six players on NBA health and safety protocols, and Trevor Ariza also remained unavailable due to injury.
